Electronic Hoarding

You all know what this means (Pinterest) and if you don't good for you.  I cannot even count the hours of a week I spend browsing this site.  But when I say that it sounds like I hate it.  On the contrary.  I love Pinterest and even though I spend countless hours on it there is always something awesome to find.  Whether its a new quilt idea or a new yummy meal for the family I am always finding things there.  It's a wish list for if I were to ever win the lottery so to speak.  Ya know how it room decorating ideas, repurposed furniture that would go great in this room or that.  But in reality it is just a great place to keep stuff without having to add rooms on to your house.  Because heaven knows I could never have all that stuff in my house.  It would be bursting at the seams ( I know I know... it kind of is already without all that extra stuff)

But this morning I have been up for a few hours alone with nothing but my thoughts and the Internet (Right?  Never a good thing huh) I was on Pinterest looking through all the things that I have pinned through the last few years (72 boards, 4,021 pins & 946 likes) and have decided that I need to start doing some of these projects.  Well the ones that won't cost an arm & a leg to complete and that will serve a purpose because who really needs a vampire killing fence?  Right me neither.  Although this same thought would be handy for zombie killing as well  :)

But I have been wanting to create a space in my kitchen for my keurig and all the coffee paraphernalia that we have.  You know the old thought "everything has a place & everything in its place"  I love this thought but raising kids it kind of went out the window and we just try to do what we can to be as organized as possible so we can get by without being lost in the mess.  So this morning while looking at my pins I came across this one...Cute right?  I love the idea of this.  When I pinned it must have believed that I could make it a reality right?  Why else would I have pinned it?  For if we ever move and have a "dream kitchen" no.  I don't ever see us moving.  We have put so much work into the little piece of land that it would be silly to leave now.  So with the hopes of maybe getting this done in my kitchen in the future I pinned a cute little coffee station.  Guess what TODAY is the future!

Yes, today is that "one day in the future" that I am going to make a coffee station.  In my kitchen and it will be absolutely cute and incredibly functional.  That's right.  I am going to take the pin idea and make it reality. Yay me!

I would like to try out more pin ideas and instead of just collecting them online (electronic hoarding) make them something real...I have done this in the past, made it a point to try some of the things that I pinned.  I have a board on Pinterest that is titled "tried these love em"  You should check it out.  I am going to try more pins and build the pin count on the tried it board.  If I don't blog about them you can still check them out on my Pinterest page or either of the following.

Well I finished it.  My very own coffee station for all our coffee and tea making needs.  In the photo the only thing not finished is the hooks for the cups to hang from on the shelf.  But this afternoon hubs brought home hooks and now the cups are up handy for anyone who whats a nice cup of coffee or tea.  I love this space, it looks so cute.  Just need to decide on a color to paint the cabinet :-/

Thanks again for reading
